Stream Clear volunteers bring the babble back to the Westbrook

Following yesterday’s Stream Clear the Westbrook is flowing freely again…

Here’s how it looked the day before, overgrown and sluggish…

And the willow has had a haircut too, from this…

…to this…

You could barely see the surface of the overgrown Westbrook before…

But here it is after the Stream Clear – continuous water from bridge to bridge…

Everything organised in advance…

And great team work during the event…

The chalk and flint bed is visible once more…

There’s plenty of waste for Swale to remove as planned…

  

The next Stream Clear is 27th September!
